GY054 Vermont IPA GigaYeast
GigaYeast Vermont IPA GY054 is from one of the best examples of an East Coast IPA. This GigaYeast attenuates slightly less than NorCal Ale #1 and leaves a beer with more body and a slight fruity ester that is amazing with aromatic hops. GY054 Vermont IPA GigaYeast is a great choice for high gravity beers and hoppy styles. Broad temperature range and moderate flocculation make this yeast a versatile house strain.
